Seahawks Fantasy Five

In this new feature, scout.com looks at the top five questions for all 32 teams that fantasy football participants will have to face in their drafts this summer.

Seattle Seahawks

1. Will QB Matt Hasselbeck put up big numbers this season?

scout.com: Hasselbeck has shown to be a steady fantasy performer the past two seasons. However, the release of starting WR Koren Robinson could turn out to hurt because they don't appear to have an adequate replacement currently on the roster though many will be given a chance in training camp to win the job. Because of that, Hasselbeck looks to be a decent fantasy starter but not quite as good as once thought.

2. Is RB Shaun Alexander doesn't play for the team this season, who would fill in?

scout.com: Holdovers Maurice Morris and Kerry Carter would get a chance to start. Morris is a smaller, quicker back while Carter offers more size. Both would have different roles but you could see a committee situation.

3. Other than Darrell Jackson, are any of their receivers worth drafting?

scout.com: Robinson offered the team a physical presence at the position which they badly need opposite WR Darrell Jackson. It appears veteran WR Bobby Engram will head in to training camp with the starters but he's better suited for a reserve role.

The receiver that has a better chance to start than the rest is Joe Jurevicius who has battled through two injury plagued seasons but seems to be healthy now. He offers pretty good size and ability.

4. Are any of their tight ends worth drafting?

scout.com: Itula Mili and Jerramy Stevens will battle for the starting job again but neither have been able to separate one from the other in the past three seasons so you're probably better off passing on them unless you need a backup.

5. Is their fantasy defense worth drafting as a starter or backup?

scout.com: They have lost some key players in free agency and haven't adequately replaced them so we no longer their fantasy defense as starter worthy. Draft them as your backup if you plan to have two defenses on your roster.
